The Cast Iron Skillet with the Big Message!


We specialize in milling unique orders on Lodge® Cast Iron skillets for functionality or display only.

We are excited to mill the perfect creation for you!


These skillets make the perfect gift!

Each skillet can be custom designed,

use your imagination!


We not only engrave these skillets for home decor purposes, we can also season them so you can still use them for cooking!

Smoothing the Surface

We start by throwing each skillet on a lathe to smooth out the bottom. After a few turns, and a light sanding, the skillet bottom is flat and ready to be milled.

CNC Crazy

We currently have two CNC milling machines for engraving each order. We started with a Bridgeport, and recently added a Tormach to the shop.

Finishing Touch

After millling the perfect design, the skillet is then lightly sanded , and either sprayed with a protective polyurethane coating, or seasoned with two coats of Crisbee™ for cooking use!

We Offer Three Finish Options

Our Decoration Only options are:

  • The more traditional cast iron look of  silver engraving on a black background..
  • Black engraving on a smooth silver background.

Our third finish option is to season the skillets for cooking use. 

Seasoned skillets have a brown, almost bronzed, look when finished. 

Branded Iron, you say?

Living in a rural western community, where there are more cows than people, we wanted to create something for the hardworking ranchers. 

Our initial idea was to start engraving brands on skillets for local ranchers and farmers...hence the name Branded Iron! 

We now engrave more than just cattle brands, though those are still fun to create! We believe the sky is the limit, and if you can dream it, we can mill it!

It all started with a rusty pan. 

Now, we use new Lodge 

Cast Iron skillets.

We are excited to create the perfect skillet for you!
